Jose Mourinho

Solskjaer has revealed he is confident Jose Mourinho will receive a warm reception when he returns to Old Trafford on Wednesday.


The Portuguese coach was sacked by the Red Devils in December 2018 and now returns as rival.

Mourinho guided United to EFL Cup and Europa League triumphs during his two-and-a-half years in charge and Ole believes it will be all smiles for him.

The Norwegian told a media conference: “[He will receive a] very good reception; that’s just a testament to this club and these supporters.

“Of course, they remember the two-and-a-half years when he won trophies. So, for me, I’m 100 per cent sure our fans, staff and club will welcome him.”
